We want to thank you all so very much for your prayers for our precious CJ and our family. We are in desperate need of your prayers to intercede for us and to sustain us. We first confess that we have often failed you very people in prayer many times. We have often received the email requests for prayer or the reminder of someone in need of prayer and then forgotten to pray or allowed the cares of daily life to choke out that need. Or in our business we have offered a quick prayer and then left it all up to a Sovereign God and did not really spend the effort to really intercede for our brothers and sisters as we should. We humbly ask every one's forgiveness for this yet we boldly ask you to still pray for our CJ. Please cry out to God and intercede for him and for us. Please ask, beg and plead with us as we cry out to God to strengthen him and to heal him.
As many of you know, during a routine MRI for chronic back pain a mass was found in his pelvis that wraps around his spine. He was immediately admitted to the Emergency Room and then transferred to the Joe DiMaggio's Children's Hospital in Hollywood for further testing and evaluation. He will undergo a biopsy on Monday September 15th that will determine the type of tumor this is. After meeting with many different doctors we were told this has also spread to his kidneys. They are already fairly certain this is malignant and the biopsy will determine what form of cancer he has. We are asking God for a benign result of the biopsy even though we have already been told this is not likely. But our God is not a God of likeliness, he is a God of certainty and all his promises are yes and amen. If that is not in His will we are asking for God to have mercy on him and allow it to be an easily treatable form of cancer that responds to medical intervention as opposed to the aggressive kind that does not. I beg you to agree with us in prayer for these same results.
As I type this my heart is torn and my mind is fighting accepting I am talking about my own family, my own son. Yet I know I must do this and ask as many as are willing to pray with us.
I thank you God for not sparing you own son yet I beg of you to spare mine. I know that is unfair and I don't deserve to ask you for that but I stand on your promises that I can boldly approach your throne in freedom and confidence and submit my requests to You. So I do and I bow and beg you to heal my son.
We will try to continue to post updates on his progress here on the blog so people can find out what is going on and hear about the healing God brings to him. May God bring Glory to His name through this.
You may feel free to leave comments for him and they will be read to him to encourage him to be strong.
